The software development lifecycle management is a crucial aspect of software development, as it defines significantly the effectiveness of development and the maturity of the final product. A suitable management system is especially important in safety critical development, such as the development of medical devices, as these developments have to be well documented to prove the safe operation of the given instrument. This paper prepares a case study to help a company improving their existing lifecycle management system by establishing a group of requirements. In particular, the paper focuses on medical device software development aspects. The answering of these questions allows achieving an optimal choice among the possible management systems either by providing a quantitative comparison or by highlighting the grounds for exclusion.
